    Alas Mrs McGinty; we hardly knew youReally I mean that She was a widow a woman who cleaned houses and took in lodgers to make ends meet; had a niece whom she saw at holidays and was perhaps a bit of a nosy parker; nothing extraordinary to fill the obituary When Inspector Spence visits the retired Poirot he share

    Another fine Christie mystery that keeps the reader guessing until the very endThe fact that this is the 30th Poirot book seems to be noticed as the Belgium detective reminisces of his time with Hastings while a returing character

Ter dood veroordeeld heeft Ten einde raad roept hij Hercule Poirot te hulp om de werkelijke moordenaar te vinden I should perhaps madame tell you a little about myself I am Hercule Poirot The revelation left Mrs Summerhayes unmoved What a lovely name she said kindly Greek isn t it Now this is a Poirot novel that strays from the script a bit It s fascinating but there seem to be three parts to this novel and the crimemystery part is the weakest one Yet I really liked the book because first and foremost Christie made me laugh out loud uite a few times Eh bien let s start with the weakest part the crimemystery So Mrs McGinty is found dead and her lodger has been arrested is standing trial and will probably be sentenced to hang but Superintendent Spence is having doubts and is consulting an old acuaintance to have a look at the case I don t know what you ll go there as continued Spence doubtfully as he eyed Poirot You might be some kind of an opera singer Voice broken down Got to rest That might do I shall go said Hercule Poirot speaking with accents of royal blood as myself Spence received this pronouncement with pursed lips D you think that s advisable From there on the typical sleuthing adventure ensues except that there are a lot and I do mean way too many characters that are part of the investigation a few red herrings Ariadne Oliver whose involvement in the book has less to do with the plot I ll get to that later and an ending that seems to have been rather far fetched In fact by the time the mystery was resolved I had kinda lost interest in the whodunit part and really enjoyed the characters interacting with each other This book is really not about the mystery which in my opinion was rather sub par No rather the book seems to have been a self reverential celebration of all things Poirot And this may or may not be to readers tastes I uite liked it in this case We have a lot of details about Poirot himself In his early days he had seen plenty of crude brutality It had been the rule than the exception He found it fatiguing and unintelligent My work has enslaved me just as their work enslaves them When the hour of leisure arrives they have nothing with which to fill their leisureWe have a couple of tips of the hat to The Murder of Roger Ackroyd which was published 25 years before Mrs McGintys Dead when Poirot discussed gardening with Spence Me once I decided to live in the country and grow vegetable marrows It did not succeed I have not the temperament In many of the details that describe Poirot in this book Christie seems to take a retrospective stance It serves as a celebration of his previous adventures but I also could not help feeling that Christie took the opportunity to have some fun herself and poke her famous character at every opportunity Not only does she send Poirot to the country and we all know how much Poirot hates the country It s not really a Guest House just a rather decrepit country house where the young couple who own it take in paying guests I don t think said Spence dubiously that it s very comfortable Hercule Poirot closed his eyes in agony If I suffer I suffer he said It has to be And Christie makes sure of it his suffering This was one of my favourite parts and I am sure anyone who has ever been exasperated by Poirot s eccentricities would chuckle about the following scene of Poirot taking up lodgings at a country inn The room was large and had a faded Morris wall paper Steel engravings of unpleasant subjects hung crookedly on the walls with one or two good oil paintings The chair covers were both faded and dirty the carpet had holes in it and had never been of a pleasant design A good deal of miscellaneous bric brac was scattered haphazard here and there Tables rocked dangerously owing to absence of castors One window was open and no power on earth could apparently shut it again The door temporarily shut was not likely to remain so The latch did not hold and with every gust of wind it burst open and whirling gusts of cold wind eddied round the room I suffer said Hercule Poirot to himself in acute self pity Yes I suffer The door burst open and the wind and Mrs Summerhayes came in together She looked round the room shouted What to someone in the distance and went out againMrs Summerhayes had red hair and an attractively freckled face and was usually in a distracted state of putting things down or else looking for themHercule Poirot sprang to his feet and shut the doorA moment or two later it opened again and Mrs Summerhayes reappeared This time she was carrying a large enamel basin and a knife A man s voice from some way away called out Maureen that cat s been sick again What shall I do Mrs Summerhayes called I m coming darling Hold everything She dropped the basin and the knife and went out againPoirot got up again and shut the door He said Decidedly I suffer As I said I really enjoyed this part of the story but I did keep wondering why Christie took to treating Poirot in such a way Was it to celebrate him or was she falling out with him as a character that had become so famous that he had a life of his own just as Arthur Conan Doyle fell out with Holmes Which brings me to the third part Ariadne Oliver Ariadne is basically Christie s way of injecting a fictionalised version of herself into the Poirot stories and in this one Ariadne enters the scene nearly knocking Poirot over with her car and spends a lot of time agonising over how her own fictional creation Sven Hjerson is being changed inappropriately by theatre and film producers Robin continued blithely What I feel is here s that wonderful young man parachuted down Mrs Oliver interrupted He s sixty Oh no He is I don t see him like that Thirty five not a day older But I ve been writing books about him for thirty years and he was at least thirty five in the first one But darling if he s sixty you can t have the tension between him and the girl what s her name Ingrid I mean it would make him just a nasty old man It certainly would So you see he must be thirty five said Robin triumphantly Then he can t be Sven Hjerson Just make him a Norwegian young man who s in the Resistance Movement But darling Ariadne the whole point of the play is Sven Hjerson You ve got an enormous public who simply adore Sven Hjerson and who ll flock to see Sven Hjerson He s box office darling Yeah I can see Christie having exactly this sort of conversation with agents and producers about Poirot and Marple and I can see Christie using this particular book as a dig at people trying to exploit her characters And given the resolution of the plot what a dig this is If only it had deterred her estate to employ Charles Osborne to adapt her plays as novels So while the mystery plot is rather mediocre the context this novel provides for Poirot as a character that has developed a public persona outside of the books is just marvelous

Mrs McGinty's Dead

Wanneer de oude mevrouw McGinty met ingeslagen schedel wordt gevonden kost het de politie niet veel moeite de da Poirot was bored and had nothing to do Luckily for him his friend Superintendent Spence came to him for a consultation He recently finished the investigation of seemingly simple murder case where somebody crushed a skull of an old lady All the clues pointed to her tenant who was arrested found guilty in the court and was awaiting his execution Everything was fine except that Superintendent Spence was a good honest cop His sixth sense as well as lifelong experience of dealing with criminals kept telling him he got the wrong guy regardless of all the clues And so he came to Poirot Poirot became interested in the case He went to a uiet village where the crime took place and began his investigation stirring a hornet s nest on purpose expecting the real culprit would betray himself herself The novel is interesting because it had a slow start After all the murder was as unexciting as they come practically a domestic one Somehow after the first third of the book or so when Poirot finally started finding clues pointing as somebody else the tale became and interesting even if I was able to predict some developments Speaking about prediction I was not able to guess the murderer Not because I tried too hard and failed on the contrary I did not try hard enough Somehow the plot encouraged me to forget about working out the solution and just to go with the flow It might be just a general fatigue This fact did not diminish my enjoyment of the book when I was amusing myself with Poirot s shenanigans and suffering his accommodations in the village were way below average and he was used to comfort I suffer said Hercule Poirot to himself in acute self pity Yes I suffer 4 stars is the final rating Neither Dame Agatha nor her most famous character showed any signs of slowing down in thirtieth book of the series PS Mrs Oliver was one of the characters of the story and after reading this book I became firmly convinced Agatha Christie wrote her after herself If you read carefully at one point Mrs Oliver breaks the fourth wall when she talks about her Finnish detective Substitute him with a certain Belgian colleague of his and you will see what I mean Authors were shy unsociable creatures atoning for their lack of social aptitude by inventing their own companions and conversations
